Towards Healthy Life

One little thing at the time

Where to start…

I think it started when I baked a rum cake for husband’s birthday because it’s his favourite. By now I can just say that it might also be my favourite or it is simply addictive. We had a piece after lunch and I allowed myself to eat some because I thought I would be able to control myself like I do with cookies that are often in the house. I was so wrong! I lost it. Hubby was gone at work and was suppose to take half the cake with him but he forgot. All I could think about was that damned cake. I had another piece and another piece. I felt out of control and ashamed that some pastry could make me feel that way. I even stopped logging my food for the day.

What’s worth a 5 km walk?

The last few days I have been Spring cleaning! It’s been hard work and I did lots of steps without realising it. It was just as much as going for a 5 km walk. Today I guess I have been slacking a little or maybe it just depends on the kind of cleaning I was doing because I didn’t do so many steps. I have been putting cleaning, scrubbing and tiding up before myself

What if…

I usually weigh myself everyday to keep me “on guard” and focus on my weight loss journey. Every Thursday I record my weight on my blog so you can see my progress.

Walking and other things

Today my husband was working a later shift so before lunch, when he was playing with daughter I took the time for myself and went for a walk. No stroller to push was really nice. That same old nasty wind was there so I just started my walk facing it to do the hardest part first. I took a new trail and made it to the rotary park and followed another new path that leads to a street that I normally walk with daughter. It was nice to walk through the bush, hear the river and even some birds. When I got home 1 hour later my legs were all shaky and I was really tired. I sat down for 5 minutes and made myself something to eat, then I found out that I was not as tired anymore. I mean before it would have taken me longer to get over the walk!

Almost 5 km

I just went for a walk and now that I am back I can see on my Fitbit that I walked for 1 hour and 13 minutes. I did 6503 steps which is 4.96 km. I burned 433 calories!!! Yay! The gadget didn’t know that I was pushing my daughter in the stroller so it might be even more calories. I am tired but happy with myself.

Can I handle fluctuations?

Yes I can…but of course it does feel better when the scale goes down even for a fraction of a pound. Yesterday morning the balance board told me 175 pounds! I was happy and it was the same the day before and I have been down a little everyday this week so I took it for granted. Since I  have been on track with my calorie goal this week the numbers seemed right.

Is grocery shopping a work-out?

If you read my last post you know that I was wondering if doing the shopping was exhausting because I was unfit. There is certainly some of that but apparently I am not the only one who finds this task tiring.

So just to be clear  about what exactly I mean with shopping I will just say what it involves for me.

Walking in silence

Because my husband works in hospitality we often have our week-end in a different time that the majority. Sometimes we have Saturday and Sunday but most of the time it’s Sunday and Monday. I don’t mind it like that because at the moment I am at home and that way if we go to the city we have one day where everything is open.
